Hydro-Fuelled Black Cabs
The first hydrogen Fuel Cell Black Cabs hit the streets of London on March 22 2011.
Launched by global clean power systems company Intelligent Energy, each taxi is equipped with a fuel cell and a lithium polymer battery pack, allowing the car to travel up to 250 miles a day.
The goal is to create a fleet of zero emission taxis in time for the 2012 London Olympics. London Mayor Boris Johnson says: “These prototype zero-emission taxis are a shining example of British ingenuity, combining revolutionary fuel cell technology with an iconic design classic.”
